1 Chronicles 13
David fetcheth the Ark with great solemnity from Kirjath-jearim.
1 Chronicles 13:1 And Dauid counceled with the Capitaines of thousandes and hundredes, & with all the Lordes, 1 Chronicles 13:2 and sayde vnto all the congregacyon of Israel: If it seme you good & also to be of the Lord ouer God? Let vs take & sende vnto þe remnaunt of oure brethren thorow out all the land of Israel, & to the preastes and Leuites wyth them, in theyr cyties and suburbes, and geather them to geather to vs. 1 Chronicles 13:3 And lett vs brynge agayne the Arcke of the Lorde to vs: for we regarded yt not in the dayes of Saul. 1 Chronicles 13:4 And all the congregacion was content so to do, for the thynge semed good in the eyes of all the people. 1 Chronicles 13:5 And Dauid geathered all Israel to geather from Sihor in Egypt vnto Hemath, to bring the Arcke of the Lorde from Kariath Iarim. 1 Chronicles 13:6 And Dauid went vp & all Israel to Baalah, and so to Kariath Iarim that is in Iuda, to fet thence the Arcke of the God & Lorde that sytteth on the Cherubes. Where hys name is called on. 1 Chronicles 13:7 And they caryed the Arcke of God in a newe carte out of the house of Aminadab. And Oza & his brother draue þe carte. 1 Chronicles 13:8 And Dauid & all Israel played before God with all theyr myght, with syngyng, harpes, psalteries, tymbrelles and trompettes.
Uzza being smitten, the Ark left at the house of Obed-edom.
1 Chronicles 13:9 And when they came on the thressynge flowre of Chidon, Oza put forth his hande to holde the arcke, for the oxen stombled. 1 Chronicles 13:10 And the Lorde was wroth with Oza & smote hym, because he put hys hande to the Arcke. And there he dyed before God. 1 Chronicles 13:11 And Dauid was displeased, because the Lorde had rent a rent in Oza and called the sayde place Perez Oza vnto this daye. 1 Chronicles 13:12 And Dauid was so afrayed of God that daye, that he sayde, how shall I brynge the Arcke of God whome to me. 1 Chronicles 13:13 And so Dauid brought not þe Arcke home to him to the cytie of Dauid: But turned it in to the house of Obed Edom o Gethite. 1 Chronicles 13:14 And þe Arcke of God was wyth Obed Edom in his house, thre monethes. And the Lorde blessed the house of Obed Edom & all that he had.
